one-point lead in florida. and according to a market university poll he is up by eight points. in colorado the president is up by three points? ohio, he is up by two points. and the most recent polls in nevada and new hampshire have him up there as well. check this out! 332 electoral votes to 188 according -- i think i just knocked that out. to 191. that's from today. the only swing state that shows he is down -- actually tied today but down over all is in north carolina. and then there's pennsylvania. the romney camp made a $120,000 ad buy yesterday and three super pacs supporting romney have poured $6 million into pennsylvania just this week. why, you might ask? well, it's all part of their plan to quote, expand the electoral map. the president is up by four points in pennsylvania and they are still pouring all of that money into it. the poll out today was a franklin and marshall poll. and david axelrod placed an interesting range isser on whether the participate would take minnesota, michigan or pennsylvania. >> i will shave off my mustache if we lose a
. florida congressman allen west, he's raised $17 million compared to the $3.5 million of his democratic opponent patrick murphy. but polls show murphy leading west 48% to 47%. and, of course, we just cannot forget illinois congressman joe walsh -- perhaps the craziest of them all. he's answering a question about women's reproductive rights. take a listen. >> if a woman's life is at issue, would you say she was allowed to have a abortion? >> let me say there's no sun exception. with modern technology and science, you can't find one instance. this is an issue that opponents of life throw out there to make us look unreasonable. >> jennifer: actually, congressman, i think you're doing a pretty good job of looking unreasonable on your own. fortunately, voters in walsh's district agree because the latest polls have him trailing his democratic opponent tammy duckworth 40% to 54% for her! and tonight i'm pleased to be joined by iraq war vet joe walsh opponent and congressional candidate, tammy duckworth coming to
ballots. millions! let's take a look at everyone's favorite electoral nightmare florida, where the state took an unprecedented step of cutting early voting time in half. that has meant lines around the block in many polling stations. miami-dade county is averaging more than 26,000 voters per day. there was a four-hour wait to vote today. >> usually it's, you know, five, six, ten people in front of you and this is ridiculous. >> jennifer: so some voting advocates are concerned that the long waits could turn voters off. the president of league of women voters urged republican governor rick scott to extend early voting. she said such long waits are discouraging to voters whose schedules or physical conditions cannot accommodate these types of delays. well back in 2008 then governor charlie crisp did extend early voting in florida because of the long lines. but at a fundraiser last night governor rick scott said he would not follow suit. mike grissom the executive director explained it this way. for one side to demand that we break the law because they feel like they are losing is wrong. wh
they could wrap around the neck of one senator after another. they spent millions on ads in florida trying to brag down bill nelson and it didn't move the needle a bit. americans know they want clean energy, and the reason they don't get it is because the exxons and chevrons of the world are addicted to the profits that flow from dirty energy. >> the apartheid movement they knew the separation of people was wrong. >> this requires that moral persuasion. >> i think you are absolutely right. one of the videos is from desmond tootoo and he is an old man now, but it is a very moving video, where he says this is the next great moral issue of our time, and we need to put pressure on in the same way. 350.org works in 191 countries around the world, so we have those images in spades from every corner of the earth, people who have been flooded from their homes, crops have withered, and crops are disappearing under water. >> jennifer: america has to lead, because there needs to be a global consensus, because whatever we do obviously people look at that. it must be a consensus am
tonight takes us as it so often does to florida. john metz, owner of 40 denny's restaurants says that he's going to add a 5% obamacare surcharge to his customer's bills and this, of course, comes on the heels of pizza owner papa john's similar obamacare protest adding money cost to his pizzas. i'm actually kind of curious to see how this is going to play out. when diners are presented with an oversized bill, they're going to complain for sure. they're just not usually going to complain about the president of the united states. just sayin'. the signatures have been counted and it appears there is scant support for states to leave our union and go their separate ways. but don't worry. our brett ehrlich is still making plans on how to help those states out so shh brett's talking now. >> well, america, it was fun while it lasted. but after president obama's victory last week, all 50 states have formally petitioned to secede from the union.
